Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this homestudy course, the participant will be able to:

  • Develop ability to teach patients to minimize how often they enter the craving cycle.

  • Learn an effective way to educate patients regarding physical, psychological, and social set-up behaviors which lead to entering the craving cycle.

  • Develop a thorough understanding of trigger events and the ability to explain them in way patients can understand and avoid them to minimize relapse.

Course Description

A common, though necessary, approach in chemical dependence treatment is teaching recovery tools to be utilized when craving strikes.  However, teaching tools for intentional avoidance of the craving cycle is often overlooked placing patients at unnecessary risk of relapse. This training demonstrates utilization of CBT principles and Gorski-CENAPS relapse prevention skills in aiding patients to proactively deter craving before it occurs.
